Heirloom Lace Trim

Many of these imported heirloom laces are Valenciennes lace, or a bobbin type lace which originated in France in the early 18th century. Consisting of delicate motifs on netting, they are ideal for many applications, from trimming your favorite doll’s frock, to dressing up a pair of scrumptious Liberty of London cotton lounging pajamas.
